I was made aware of it rather unpleasantly some months ago. What for me was innocuous question got me banned on some subreddit for 'spewing alt-right rhetoric'. It was something along the lines of "why are you so opposed to white people getting financial help in college? poverty is poverty."

    poverty is poverty

Yeah...

At some point the Republicans realized if you can make poor people hate other poor people you can get rid of things like unions and swaths of social safety net.
